Should you’re enthusiastic about or considerably confused by the Yellow Vest Movement (YVM), do your self and society a service by studying this text in its entirety.
To start, the YVM is kind of Occupy 2.zero; it’s an natural response to regulate and corruption even when it has been manipulated by highly effective pursuits (together with by way of misrepresentation in the company media). Briefly, it rejects the corporatocracy, in any other case often known as the crony capitalism we have now at present. It rejects placing income earlier than the individuals and the setting. And it rejects grasping and evil behaviour by these in energy.
Finally, it rejects oppression.
There’s a chief of the YVM, however it isn’t an individual. As an alternative, it’s an settlement. This interconnection has typically been spoken in historic incarnations, however not all the time. Regardless, the historic union between the individuals might be summed up with one phrase: freedom.
So while we take pleasure in the starting of Twenty Nineteen, additionally it is necessary to pay respect to the tons of of tens of millions of individuals throughout our world who’re someplace between annoyed and outright livid with the corrupted design of our social system. They genuinely need change for the individuals, and our future generations.
And that’s unity, proper there. Embrace it for a second, as a result of it’s proof we will come to an settlement which might result in actual world modifications, if we so select.
So make no mistake: if the YVM is to be absolutely profitable it wants as many individuals as potential to really feel how they’ve been scammed and lied to, as a result of they can’t un-feel it. In different phrases, the public must get on board. This essay, subsequently, is designed to contribute to a much-needed civil discourse about this rising international dissent, together with encouraging a robust give attention to the elementary flaws of our systemic blueprint.
The Spread of the YVM
As soon as once more the energy of the individuals has been mightily illustrated by people coming collectively to say “enough is enough”, this time culminating as the international unfold of the YVM.
Originating in France late 2018, the Yellow Vest image has been adopted by dozens of different nations from each the West and East. For instance, many European nations have held robust demonstrations over the final a number of weeks. Hundreds of Taiwanese individuals protested towards tax injustices. Iraqis who donned yellow vests demanded improved public providers. Canadians are gallantly stepping up with a FB group of over 110Okay members who’ve organised recurring rallies on every Sunday. And Australians have protests organised throughout the nation for the 19th January, 2019.
The record goes on.
The Individuals of the YVM
There are as many motives for becoming a member of the YVM as there are individuals. Every particular person is exclusive of their expertise and subsequently their perspective. Many are simply abnormal individuals who have been personally impacted by poor coverage design, and others are extra lively individuals in the fact and freedom community which has slowly been increasing in response to a rebirthing of historic philosophy and highly effective individuals conspiring in our world.
Many of those conspiracies appear outrageous to the public. No matter which of them are true and which of them aren’t, they nonetheless need to be placed on the stage of public discourse as a result of lots of them are correct accounts of actuality. That must be facilitated, and never mocked, by the mainstream media, which is clearly the reverse of what’s occurring. That is one potent purpose why public belief in mainstream media has plummeted over current years and why the approach info is disseminated and subsequently absorbed all through our society has been shifting in the direction of unbiased, on-line media. Moreover, it’s additionally why dismantling the previous and new media monopolies is a key goal of activists and dissenters.
Regardless, members of the YVM need the similar factor: justice. Sadly nevertheless, most individuals who’ve consciously unleashed their deep disdain towards the corruption of the political and company elite have too slender focus, reminiscent of on peripheral points which don’t account for the core design flaws of our social system. Others think about punishing these in energy, as an alternative of easy methods to switch the energy again to the individuals. And others focus solely on reworking the meta-model of our social system, calling for anarcho-capitalism, minarchism, a Useful resource-Based mostly-Financial system (RBE) or another futurist romanticism.
The Resistance to the Resistance
The Yellow Vest protests originated in France and has subsequently been dubbed ‘The French Revolution 2.0’. But there are some individuals who consider protests are ineffective and that authorities is dangerous, full cease.
They are saying that authorities is inherently corrupt and subsequently the solely aim must be to close it down. I empathise with this attitude, nevertheless a lot nuance is missed with such black and white views. For instance, many protests over our historical past have resulted with the change sought, regardless if the objectives have been misguided or not. But even when a protest is on the proper goal however it fails to ship actual change in the system, there have been nonetheless many individuals who have been educated about the points all through the course of.
That’s nonetheless a win for the enlargement of our collective consciousness.
As well as, governments aren’t going anyplace quickly, nor ought to they. While I like the philosophy and ethics of anarchism (i.e. no authorities, individuals rule themselves and so forth.), it’s harmful and unrealistic to want for it in our present period. Perhaps over the coming many years if we start to qualify as an ‘enlightening species’, however proper now there are too many cultural clashes, an excessive amount of energy in fallacious locations, an excessive amount of psychopathy, and an excessive amount of harmful weaponry to even start contemplating eradicating the managerial methods we’ve in place.
Now in fact it’s necessary to determine the potential macro-models we might revolutionise our future with, in addition to acknowledge the many signs of our sick social construction, nevertheless we desperately have to take management of the core infrastructure to provoke incremental shifts in the direction of a extra simply and honourable systemic design for ourselves and our forthcoming generations.
In any case, there’s little settlement on the objectives, not to mention the paths to realize them. That’s why we additionally want to make sure an inclusive, rational focus which builds unity by way of settlement, which in flip would educate mainstream mindsets and various thinkers alike on the deep systemic issues and their potential options, together with how their liberty has been stripped away by an more and more centralised management system.
Subsequently, the preliminary steps ought to concentrate on minimising authorities interference in our lives, making certain it’s really consultant of the individuals and is servicing our true wants. This might clearly embrace basing all legal guidelines on particular person liberty, which means the particular person has supreme authority over themselves, while additionally being held accountable for doing no hurt until in self-defence.
And don’t forget: society must be re-educated on so many ranges which can take at the very least a era or two to realize, so we must be aware of this when discussing learn how to transfer ahead.
So make no mistake: with a larger give attention to what we do agree on, in addition to how we might evolve that settlement, we might little question encourage many extra individuals to drink from the fountain of freedom after which information others to do the similar.
Refocusing the YVM
I’ve spent a few years monitoring and documenting the present enlargement of our collective consciousness. There’s the good, the dangerous and the ugly. The good is an ongoing enlargement, the dangerous is a plateaued enlargement and the ugly is getting misplaced in conspiratorial dogmas that are lifeless ends at greatest, and self-abusive at worst.
Throughout this time I’ve targeted on three main areas, that are metaphysics, private improvement and social change. All three are related right here. For instance, a core expertise in metaphysical exploration is deepening our connection with connection, one thing that we have to do amongst ourselves if we’re to actually change the system for the higher.
As well as, private improvement is related as a result of taking distinctive care of all the layers of our well being is the biggest revolt we will have towards a sick system. It’s additionally required in order that we converse extra inclusively with one another, particularly these we disagree with, as a result of it will increase the success price of facilitating change in addition to reinforces our harmonisation with one another.
And when it comes to social change, there are some key design areas which are 100% essential to give attention to if we need to revolutionise our world, effectively and successfully.
These themes thread all through this text, each subtly and explicitly.
Constructing on our Settlement for Freedom
My most up-to-date article on the YVM reached into the lots of of hundreds of individuals as a result of it was republished throughout many unbiased information websites. I used to be grateful that it went to date. In it I argued the have to create common agreements that might truly provoke actual systemic change.
Now be assured, what follows isn’t the ‘be all and end all’; it’s only a collection of strategies that I hope will encourage higher public discourse. It’s designed to information, not management. Now that I’ve made that clear, the components for swift social shifts is sort of easy, at the very least in concept:
- Agree on some primary values that most individuals would help, particularly the public;
- Agree on some primary rules for guiding the change;
- Agree on the core flaws in the system and their potential options, which might create actual change;
- Share these agreements with the media and the public to extend their help;
- As a united entrance, pressure our governmental staff to behave on the will of the individuals.
In the beforehand talked about article I recognized some primary values as an example how we will simply start to return to an settlement:
I’ll make this brief and sharp. The six key values are:
1. Love over hate;
2. Fact over lies;
three. Freedom over enslavement;
four. Happiness over struggling;
5. Justice over injustice; and
6. Peace over warfare.
Shifting on, the 4 key rules I recommended have been:
1. Knowledgeable selection (which means the requirement of an trustworthy media and authorities);
2. Sovereignty (which means all people ought to have supreme authority over themselves);
three. The Golden Rule (which means do no hurt until in self-defence); and
four. Decentralisation (which means all providers from authorities and in any other case ought to be regionally organised).
Okay, now we have now a superb template for a way we will unify. But, how can we actualise the change? The reply is clear: by agreeing on key reforms that as a nationwide citizenry we anticipate our governments to abide by.
Introducing RIC and His Pockets for Change
There’s a dire have to give attention to the core design flaws of our social system and their potential resolutions as a result of they may undoubtedly take away the energy of the political and company elite and provides it again to the individuals. I proposed this and my earlier article to an Australian Yellow Vest Group and what follows are some amendments in response to the suggestions.
So with out additional ado, I’d wish to introduce you to RIC, the main consultant of the YVM:
“Hi, I’m RIC. I embody Referendums Initiated by the Citizens (RIC), otherwise known as Citizen Initiated Referendums (CIR). Governments have lost their way and are now controlled by big money, instead of by the people. That’s why we need referendums aimed at the primary pockets of change”.
What follows, subsequently, are the core areas of the system that require speedy and lasting reform:
1. Electoral Reform to take away personal cash from politics, to bar foyer teams and vested pursuits from political decision-making and to dismantle the two-party system so unbiased group representatives are embedded into the political construction;
2. Financial Reform to create a publicly-owned cash provide, identical to the Commonwealth Financial institution of Australia was when run by Denison Miller in the early a part of the 20th Century;
three. Banking Reform to dismantle the ‘too-big-to-fail’ banks, separate business and funding banking (via the Glass-Steagall Act) and create public banks that make investments all income from cash creation (corresponding to mortgages and bank cards) into social packages and infrastructure;
four. Tax Reform to abolish all taxes and institute a transaction tax (just like the Tobin tax) so that each one tax loopholes are closed and all people and firms contribute pretty (at a flat price of just some per cent, this may at the very least double present tax income resulting from eliminating tax havens, tax fraud and untaxed speculative spending by the massive banks);
5. Regulation Reform to make sure all laws aligns with the Structure and the sovereignty precept;
6. Drugs Reform to make sure all pure and artificial medicines are cheap, accessible and authorized, in addition to create a wholesome mainstream meals and water provide (sure, meals and water are drugs too);
7. Schooling Reform to make sure education and grownup coaching fosters holistic studying, cooperation, self-discovery and well being and life expertise, in addition to truthfully educates on how the financial and governmental methods work, together with the pure rights all of us born with;
eight. Media Reform to dismantle the conventional and on-line monopolies to foster free speech and guarantee true public debate and citizen-based investigative journalism reaches the mainstream, in addition to assure critical penalties for unspoken ‘opinion’, fabrications and sponsorships in public reporting and journalism.
I do know lots of you studying this in all probability have lots to contribute to the above. Perhaps you have got totally different concepts about how the reforms ought to appear to be. You won’t even consider that each one of them are essential. Regardless, this can be a template value discussing and evolving as a result of with out the first steps, we’re going nowhere.
Uniting Mainstream and Various Thinkers
So now we have now some primary values, rules and core areas for reform. It’s undoubtedly sufficient to create a strong settlement to characterize to the public and guarantee actual change inside the system, in addition to resolve lots of the peripheral points that people give attention to inside the YVM .
Nevertheless, there are numerous different critical considerations raised by the fact and freedom community. A few of them are simply written off as ‘tin-foil-hat conspiracy’ by the mainstream media and subsequently the plenty, however is that truthful? Solely when they’re authentically mentioned on the public stage will we all know for positive of their accuracy.
So what follows are some examples of unbiased and trustworthy examinations which might be important to happen on the public stage. These inquests must be supported by the authorities, reported on by all media platforms with out bias and pushed by citizen-based investigations:
- What’s the extent of the international pedophile community, what number of youngsters are being harmed and the way excessive does it go into the political and company elite?
- To what extent has scientific analysis been perverted by company pursuits and the way can we quickly return to publicly funded, unbiased, clear, peer-reviewed scientific analysis?
- Are governments really representing their Structure, or are they ‘corporations’ which coerce residents into unconsented contracts by way of start certificates?
- Is 5G know-how harmful for our well being and may it’s hacked for nefarious functions?
- Geoengineering is now being pushed by some universities and the UN to regulate our local weather, nevertheless to what extent have chemical compounds been beforehand sprayed into our environment and what are their results on people and our surroundings?
- To what extent are new power applied sciences being suppressed?
- To what extent are massive tech companies – like Google, Fb and Twitter – behaving fraudulently and unethically, and the way can we create publicly-owned communication infrastructure for safeguarding our innate proper to free speech?
- What’s the distinction between vaccinations and immunisations, what elements are literally in vaccinations, what are their actual results on the immune system of youngsters, what number of youngsters have been disabled or killed due to vaccinations and what’s the extent of the fraud and canopy up?
- Are pharmaceutical monopolies suppressing cures for critical illness?
- What’s the true sociological influence of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s)?
- What’s the true sociological impression of the war-on-drugs?
- Why do particular pure substances, which have been scientifically confirmed to have robust therapeutic and developmental results, proceed to be outlawed?
- What are the actual agendas behind the push for a worldwide authorities?
- In what methods are the UN undermining our particular person and nationwide sovereignty?
- Is mass migration throughout our world being accomplished on objective to weaken the nation-state?
- Unclassified paperwork show that false flags are methods generally employed by governments, so which occasions in our current historical past are presently categorised false flags?
- Have been wars in the Center East and elsewhere manufactured for cash and energy?
Now no matter the place you personally stand on any of those issues, I do know you need them put to relaxation as soon as and for all.
All of us do.
And the solely approach to obtain that’s to do precisely what I advised above:
“These inquests need to be supported by the government, reported on by all media platforms without bias and driven by citizen-based investigations”
The Media’s Position
It’s the duty of the mainstream media to help an ongoing dialogue about all these points and subsequently interact the complete public in that dialogue. Now in fact they gained’t do that with out being pressured to, which to reiterate, is why there was a speedy decline in belief by the public.
That is all the proof we have to undertake media reform instantly.
Nevertheless, the unbiased media’s position is to construct momentum on this dialogue. Regardless if particular person journalists or whole platforms have their very own disagreements about some of what’s written right here, they nonetheless have a duty to contribute.
And to be straight-forward; I don’t see the distinction between the MSM and them, in the event that they don’t.
For those who kind of agree with the propositions of this text, share it. Talk about it. But to be reasonable, I don’t anticipate a lot to return from it.
Regardless that my final piece was so extensively learn, I didn’t hear from any journalist – mainstream or unbiased – who needed to discover it additional, nor did I see too many individuals inside the YVM push for constructing a wise settlement amongst their friends to characterize to the public.
As an alternative, I noticed infighting and people pushing their very own slender agendas.
Regardless, I do know this commentary can be instructional to many, which is the main objective of it. It is going to assist lots of you to push past the ideological dogma that has stagnated you, in addition to ‘feel’ our deep have to take the first steps in the direction of a greater world. I sincerely hope that’s you.
Furthermore, it’s additionally a documented account of the place we’re on this context, and the way we might probably proceed. It must be stated, it must be recorded. I’m completely satisfied to tackle that position.
And to reiterate, this submit is mentioning that we will construct an settlement that’s palatable for a confused public, while nonetheless specializing in the areas that may create actual systemic change. Or put one other approach, it illustrated that we will assemble a treaty, a message, that educates those that want it and subsequently expands the YVM with a view of truly attaining one thing, while not pushing individuals away with ideological rhetoric and wild conspiracy.
It additionally revealed that we will increase conspiratorial issues as affordable and non-offensive questions.
Furthermore, it confirmed that the “awake” group are deeply divided on many theoretical and sensible ranges. I emphasised that phrase as a result of most individuals nonetheless don’t perceive they’re NOT awake, they’re simply ‘awake to’ numerous layers of actuality, regardless if it’s metaphysical, scientific, systemic, moral or another layer.
Put merely, it’s essential for us to understand this can be a journey of awakening, not a vacation spot. And we’re all at our personal private stage of that improvement.
So the extra individuals who not simply realise this, however act prefer it too, the extra playful and productive discussions we will have as we proceed to broaden our expertise of consciousness, on each particular person and collective ranges. And on a private notice, it’s inspiring to know that so lots of you already personal that duty.
In any case, you’re the subsequent stage of humanity’s evolution. All the love and energy to you.
